Pipelines on the move in Edmonton and Calgary
ATCO Pipelines has received approval from the Alberta Utilities Commission to replace and relocate the company's high-pressure natural gas pipelines located in densely populated areas of Calgary and Edmonton.
The Urban Pipeline Replacement (UPR) Project will move the lines to the Transportation Utility Corridors (TUCs)
The TUCs have been designed to protect pipelines from development activities and the new pipelines are expected to benefit from modern pipeline coatings, welding practices and inline inspection capabilities that were not available when the existing network was constructed.
ATCO Pipelines owns and operates about 8,500 kilometres of high-pressure natural gas and associated facilities across Alberta.
